This Spanish singer who lives in Miami most of the time is completely bilingual and has hit the top of Spanish and English charts all over the world. Many of his songs have an English and a Spanish version. If you're curious about the Spanish version of this song, you can listen to it here: Dímelo. You can listen to an interview at this Interview with Enrique Iglesias.

- This guy is the hottest man video director out right now
- Hope he’s good
- He’s good, he’s a class act too, very professional
- Hey
- Hey boogie!
- What’s up buddy?
- What’s the deal, Pete?
- Good. Here’s Enrique
- Enrique!
- How you doing?
- Man, honoured. I’m lisenin’ (to) your song right now. I’ve been living your life for the past five days. Amazing. This is you, living your life, a rock star. Please, sit down. Move! Come on. Right there, right there. Please, please, please. Have a seat ++++. Sorry about the mess. Here’s my idea. Check it out:

Pool side. Girls everywhere, alright? You like that, right Enrique? We’re talking the ultimate glamour lifestyle, alright? Black and white stock-bill. Coming over the shoulder. Crisp white suit. You drinking an espresso. You keeping it crispy all the way.  (Do you know?) There’s one girl over there and you like her.

---------- DO YOU KNOW ----------

And do you know?
Do you know?

Do you know what it feels like
Loving someone
That’s in a rush to throw you away?
    (Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do ya?)
Do you know what it feels like
To be the last one
To know the lock on the door has changed?
    (Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do ya?)

In birds, flying south is a sign of changes
At least you can predict this every year
Love
You never know the minute it ends suddenly
I can’t get it to speak

Maybe if I knew all the things it took to save us
I could fix the pain that bleeds inside of me
Look in your eyes and see the same about me
I’m standing on the edge and I don’t know what else to give

Do you know what it feels like
Loving someone
That’s in a rush to throw you away?
    (Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do ya?)
Do you know what it feels like
To be the last one
To know the lock on the door has changed?
    (Do you know? Do you know? Do you know? Do ya?)

How can I love you
How can I love you
How can I love you
How can I love you
If you just don’t talk to me, babe?

I flow through my head
There's a question: Is she needing
Another side of a man I cannot be?
Looking at the last 3 years like I did
I could never see us ending like this.

(Do you know?)

Seeing your face no more on my pillow
Is a scene I said ‘never happen to me’
    (Do you know?)
But after this episode I now see
You can never tell how the next day life could be

------------------
- Bam! She gets hit by a car. Lost forever. It’s about impact. We’re pushing the envelope here, do you understand?
- err...
- It’s alright, it’s alright. I got a better idea. Ok, we’re in the woods. Light coming through the trees. You’re with your high school sweetheart...

------------------
- Oop! Lost. Over the cliff. Gone forever. What do you think?
- amm
- Brilliant, right? I know there’s a lot to take care. There’s a lot to take care.
- "Este cabrón está loco"
- ah?
- Alright
- Hey, alright?
- Good meeting you
- Sacrifice, man. That’s love, 2008
- We’ll be in touch
- We’re going to the future Enrique. Past the turn, the future. Think they liked it, babe. What do you think?

Enrique Iglesias is bilingual, but in English he sings with a smooth hint of a Spanish accent. He probably does this on purpose because American girls usually find this very sexy. But if your mother tongue is not English, you'll probably not notice anything unusual, except maybe that he doesn't pronounce the H in this song (but in other songs he does, like in "Hero", so that is, again, something he wants to do to sound more romantic).

GUY (coll. AmE)= Man, boy (the plural GUYS can be used for boys and girls)

HOTTEST= A hot man (or woman) is a man with a very nice body, but if we say, for example, "a hot writer" we mean that he is a very good writer.

HOPE HE’S GOOD= The subject (I) is missing, as it sometimes happens in colloquial conversational English.

A CLASS ACT= A person who is a class act has a lot of class in public situations.

BOOGIE (black AmE slang)= A colloquial expression equivalent to GUY or MAN, but used mainly among black people from the ghetto (so go and ask this white rich guy why he’s using it)

WHAT’S UP? (coll. Esp. AmE)= Hello; how are you?. Often pronounced "wassup?". A very common greeting in America.

BUDDY (AmE)= friend

WHAT’S THE DEAL? (AmE slang)= It is a very colloquial way of asking someone what is going on, what's happening. Usually used when asking what someone is doing that evening. But on this video it probably means something like "how are you?", because the answer is "good".

HOW YOU DOING? (AmE)= How are you?

MAN (AmE)= Mate, chap (BrE). An informal way of addressing a man or a boy
- hi man, what’s up?
- great, man. You ok?
- oh yea, man. Never been better


HONOURED= A formal way of saying "nice to meet you" (the complete phrase would be "I'm honoured to meet you"). The H is not pronounced.

FOR THE PAST FIVE DAYS (AmE)= For the last 5 days (BrE & AmE)

AMAZING= Fantastic

THIS IS YOU, LIVING YOUR LIFE= I am you. In this sentence, THIS means ME, so the sentence means "what you can see is me living your life".

THE MESS= A cluttered, untidy, usually dirty condition: The kitchen was a mess.

CHECK IT OUT (AmE)= To check something out is to test it, to inspect it, to consider it or simply to have a look.

POOL SIDE= By the side of the swimming-pool

ULTIMATE= The best, the maximum

CRISP (coll. AmE)= Cool, nice, elegant

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE?= Do you know how it feels?

LOVING SOMEONE THAT’S IN A RUSH...= The word LOVING is the direct object of the verb "to feel", and when an English verb is a noun (subject or object) it uses the form –ING. The word THAT is a relative connector, a conjunction, and it’s substituting for WHO (loving someone who is in a rush).

IN A RUSH= If you are in a rush or in a hurry, you don’t have enough time to do things so you do things quickly and can’t stop.

YA (coll.)= You (pronounced with a schwa)

LOCK= A device operated by a key, combination, or key-card and used, as on a door, for holding, closing, or securing.

I CAN’T GET IT TO SPEAK= I can’t predict love, I can’t get any sign from love that will give me information about its future (IT= love)

THE THINGS IT TOOK TO SAVE US= The things that were needed to save us.

FIX= Repair, mend, solve.

BLEED= You bleed when your blood runs out of your body (blood= the red liquid inside our veins)

EDGE= The line of intersection of two surfaces: the edge of a brick; the table's rounded edges.

I’M STANDING ON THE EDGE= I don’t know what to do.

WHAT ELSE= What more

BABE= Baby (both words can refer to a child who is very young or a way to address someone you love)

PILLOW= The soft thing we use in bed to put our head on.

PUSH THE ENVELOPE= To innovate, or go beyond commonly accepted limits.

THE WOODS= The forest.

HIGH SCHOOL (AmE)= Secondary school (BrE)

SWEETHEART (AmE)= your sweetheart is your boyfriend or girlfriend

CLIFF= A high, steep, or overhanging face of rock, like the edge of rock you sometimes get when the land meets the sea.

BRILLIANT= Fantastic

ESTE CABRÓN ESTÁ LOCO= A Spanish sentence that means "this bastard is crazy" ("bastard" is a rude insult, though not too rude).

THAT’S LOVE, 2008= That’s how love is in the year 2008. This song was produced in 2007 so 2008 is here referring to the future.

WE’LL BE IN TOUCH= Family and friends "keep in touch" by writing, phone calls, e-mail and visits. It means to stay involved in someone's life – communicate, don't let long periods of time pass without anyone hearing from you.

PAST THE TURN= I’m not all too sure about the word "turn", but if that is what he says, this phrase would mean "past the turn of the century" (=after the change of centuries), that is, "in the 21st century"

THINK THEY LIKED IT= The subject "I" is missing. This happens sometimes in colloquial English.

This is a sad song about love not returned. He had a relationship with a girl he loves a lot, but after three years, she suddenly leaves him and he’s devastated because he wasn’t expecting it. Everybody knew she didn’t love him anymore... everybody except him. He finds out because one day, when he comes to her house, the lock has been changed, so he can’t open the door using the key she had given him. The most terrible thing for him now is that he can’t understand the situation, what happened? Why did it happen? Is it his fault?
